Disaster group meets to discuss water woes

THE Mount Isa District Disaster Group will focus on supplying safe water to schools when it meets with the water board at 10am, Monday.
Mount Isa District Police Superintendent Russell Miller, the chair of the disaster group, said it was likely boiling water would be the solution if there was an increase in untreated water supply.
He believed there were essential services and major businesses in the community already “reasonably self-sufficient”.
An alternative drinkable water supply existed in supermarkets and at a bottled water supplier in Traders Way but the disaster group was unsure if there was enough to supply everyone in the city.
Superintendent Miller said he was advised Mount Isa’s water was safe to drink and there were no health issues.
The problem was that ratepayers were using more water than could be treated by the Mount Isa Water Board’s filtration system.
He asked people to reduce their water use.
The Superintendent was unsure when the situation would be resolved.
He said the group will work with the Mount Isa City Council, the Mount Isa Water Board and various health and emergency service groups.
“They are part of the district group as well, their plans are very valuable,” Superintendent Miller said.
Superintendent Miller highlighted the group was “not out there to alarm anyone”.
